Epsilon Partners

Epsilon Partners is a private equity partnership dedicated to investing in the sports, media and entertainment sectors.

More than an Investor

Epsilon Partners is an ideal investment partner for entrepreneurial management teams who are looking for more than capital from investors.

Experience

The Epsilon team is made up of individuals with deep experience of managing, as well as investing in, businesses in the sports, media and entertainment sector.

Track Record

We have been successfully investing in these sectors for 14 years and the partners have an unparalleled industry network.

Backing

We are backed by a group of high net worth individuals and bring in co-financing partners where higher investment is required.

Investment philosophy

We use our extensive experience and knowledge of the sports, media and entertainment industry to support organic development and identify opportunities for strategic growth.

sailing

£1m to £5m typical investment size - increasing to £10m with co-investment.

Our role on the board of investee companies is to support managers through the dramatic changes that occur within their businesses when undergoing a period of rapid transition and growth. This may involve assisting on key decisions such as hiring senior staff, commercialising new products and services, winning new customers, making acquisitions and so on.

  • In most cases we invest capital in an initial round with follow-on funding to support strategic growth opportunities.
  • Typically Epsilon invests for a control or joint-control shareholding in companies.

Investments

We have achieved an average net return of more than 3.5x on investments over the last 16 years.
